Athletes on Top-Ranked Teams Lack Grades and Test Scores of Other Students.
Naughton, Jim
Chronicle of Higher Education, v43 n46 pA43-A44 Jul 25 1997
A National Collegiate Athletic Association study has found that the average athlete on a top college football or men's basketball team enters college in the bottom quarter of his class. Critics say the pursuit of success in athletics is corrupting higher education. Some attribute this pattern to racial bias in testing that skews athletes' test scores. (MSE)
